The property is quietly located at the foot of Malling Hill within easy access of the town centre. Lewes is affectionately described as a small town with a big heart. Historians believe the name derives from the Old English ‘hlaews’ (‘hills’ or ‘mounds’) as Lewes is built into the slopes either side of the Ouse Valley. It was here that Simon de Montfort fought the Battle of Lewes against the King and where Tom Paine, author of ‘The Rights of Man’ once lived. Lewes has long been known for its spirit of independence and the inhabitants are proud of its significant history stretching back to Saxon times. There are many things to do in and around the county town. Lewes is a great place to shop with many independent, antique and quirky shops, and is also the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat or a drink in one of the eclectic number of pubs. Lewes also boasts a working brewery situated in the heart of the community on the banks of the Ouse. Commuters abound with a mainline railway station (London/Victoria just over the hour) found at the bottom of Station Street which leads off the High Street. There are three supermarkets; the acclaimed independent Depot cinema; leisure centre; tertiary college, along with well attended primary and senior schools. The Universities of Sussex and Brighton and the coast at Brighton are found 6 and 9 miles away respectively and the famous Glyndebourne Opera House is about 4 miles away on the outskirts of Ringmer. The Downs and local countryside are a paradise for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. Lewes is situated just off the South Downs way and within the magnificent South Downs National Park.
